Easy to install upgrades

I commented in another thread that we had made some improvements to our 2014.5 FR3 25ds. Rather than post them in a thread with a confusing title I'm staring a new thread. I hope others will post pics as well of their modifications and improvements.

We bought the hanger rail from FR and were able to install it 2 deep in the big closet. While it's nice to look at I'm not thrilled with it as you can't push the hangers around so I'm not recommending it. But it leaves room for a small shoe shelf or rack.

We bought the 2 cubby drawers from FR as well for the kitchen. They are great as the 25 has no kitchen drawers.

On the right side of the big closet are drawers from IKEA. And on top is a removable white board that can be used for kitchen prep.

The smaller closet has cheap Rubbermaid drawers on the right and plain old file boxes on the left. We need to figure a better option on the left but for now it works.

Finally there is s picture of the fantastic fan and the matching cover taken from the inside.

We bought a marine cup holder for the passenger side but have not installed it yet.

Hi who do you call to buy FR parts? I'd love to install these drawers and I need to replace the latch for the TV cabinet above the sink. Also has anyone added a spout extension outside to drain away the water when the A/C is running. Thanks for sending pics. Madelyn

Sorry. Don't know how to turn them around and slide was already in so didn't want to slide them back out before taking pics. Hope this gives ideas.

We went through this guy. It might take a few weeks as they had to make our drawers especially for us.

I love the pictures and ideas. We only have a 25 though so the bedroom and bathroom cupboards only make me envious for the storage space.

And I really should have come up with a better name for this thread. They were "easy to install" because my husband was able to do all of the work himself, but he's very handy.
